9:15 leaving to Big Water – Smoky Mountain Road for 14 miles. Then we turn right towards Grand Bench and follow the road for about 15 miles of its 27. Within those 15 miles we take some side roads to maybe get to see Lake Powell. The first attempt leads us to a creek where we have to park our Toyota and walk. Eventually, after about one hour walk, we even get a glimpse of the lake from far. We are happy and head back to the car. The second attempt we take on our way back. A detour of about 12 miles and about one hour of precious day light. But definitely worth it. We take some beautiful pictures close to sunset which means that we have to drive back in the dark. As expected Marco is bringing us back safely for a late dinner at Fiesta Mexicana.
